  1. " I agree with Hocus Pocus when he says 'need'. I someone needs a high to feel goo that's a dangerous relationship with drugs.

    You need to get highs from your own life (job success, sporting success, self-development etc) naturally. This will also help artificial highs you take ie

    If your happy with how life is progressing, grabbing a few pints while watching the football is absolutely fine, whereas, If you're depressed, going to the pub (regularly) may lead to problems..."

    Or maybe we've created the social environment whereby unless you're successful, highly paid, a sports expert maybe have chiselled good looks and an all year tan you won't be as accepted as such? Or you could even be deemed to be a failure? Social exclusion is one of the biggest drivers, an increasing amount of people of all ages unfortunately fall into the trap of seeking 'highs' to possibly fill a void in their lives? Blot out the pain and thoughts of hopelessness? Binge eating, drinking, drugs to name a few.

    Same argument can be used for those who are simply obsessed with body shape and the many pitfalls and health problems this can possibly lead too. We are all, to a greater or lesser extent, social creatures and ultimately want to be seen to conform and be a valued part of the human race.

    Until such time or more is done to tackle the root causes, stopping problems re occurring at source, even to the point of acknowledging the fact that some pressures or issues in life may just be in the mind? As in not the actual true reality. Which then leads to the very next question. Why the hell are mental health cuts even being considered?

  2. But there are many people out there who could well be completely unaware that this could alleviate pain, as our government and the media like to hush up any potential, and to demonise cannabis. It's an absolute disgrace that people are denied a medication that could improve their lives no end.


    I'm not saying everyone who has pain or suffers from other chronic conditions will find it a miracle cure, but the option for it to be prescribed should be there. The government needs to get its head out of the sand and grow up.

    Demonise? Yes, they'll do anything to try to look good. Or pretend.

    That is why more people are likely to despise them. Young and old.

  3. Interesting to see what would happen if say alcohol was banned and cannabis was legalised? Entire industries would be up in arms shouting and screaming and perhaps rightly so. Then there's the tax element. Quite obviously it is ingrained into the cultural and social fabric much like many other countries, questions then arise as to why some countries take a different stance on the matter.

  4. To think someone has to pay extra for something just because it's been on the telly? Or because a so called celeb is paid shed loads to advertise it? And it's then supposedly more superior to other similar products.

    Gullible people need look no further LOL. There's been generations of them!

  5. Hypocritical and sanctimonious is how I'd view current drug laws and the tripe peddled by some politicians. Even with Durham taking a more liberal stance the attitude was still anyone smoking a joint was some hopeless drug addict that needs help.


    Maybe we should take this attitude to all drinkers who present a much bigger danger to society. Politicians need to wisen up, people smoke cannabis because they enjoy it, 99% do not need any help and live perfectly productive lives.


    They certainly don't need out of touch, politically correct politicians telling them they're in desperate need of help.

    Yes and more are beginning to think exactly the same. Peddling some half truths is one thing hiding behind a so called screen of respectability yet in reality, it's all a pack of lies.

    Same politicians who probably ignored advice regarding 24/7 licensing from those in the know. It is pretty much confirmed the world is now full of hypocrites, either that or more are becoming slightly less gullible to the lies and spin that some are prepared to use to try and protect their interests. All a load of yes, ask any semi sane person on the street.

  6. Caffeine is both addictive and can be pretty harmful! I suspect many of us can't live without it :D

    In its earlier days it was probably much frowned upon as a social so called nasty? Interfering with so called normality at the time. Countless scare stories later you can buy it in the shops.

    Sugar and salt is probably more addictive than anything out there, anyone up for a real debate yet?

  7. Also against the grain maybe, we have some (not all) prominent people happily bleating on about standards whilst totally ignoring the advice they're happy to dish out? Hypocrisy is in fact rife. Until such time this is perhaps acknowledged then a growing number of people will be more likely to stick two fingers up to the establishment. Contempt is a two way street, works both ways.

  8. Last Halloween was a very warm day, heres betting that this Halloween will be the opposite.... :D

    Forgot to add up to six inches of snow for some the following day as northerly gales set in lol. A transitional day in the making will be 31st October.

  9. North south split is my forecast, rainy and cool north with gales in places, scattered showers with average temperatures further south before fronts push further south and east after midnight. Higher than average sale of pumpkins inevitable too.

  10. Due to today's inclement weather Summer 2015 is officially over. For some anyway lol.

    Apologies but this claim may well be inaccurate and wasn't meant to mislead anyone.

    In other news, Autumn 2015 has began today.
